The AAPI/Asian Employee Resource Group will support diversity and inclusiveness at Babson primarily by providing a space for AAPI/Asian employees to build community and have support at Babson. Additionally, this ERG will help all employees, regardless of identity, to understand, accept, and value the AAPI/Asian community. It will promote continued dialogue on the rich diversity and complexity of the AAPI/Asian experience in the United States.
The AAPI/Asian ERG will strengthen the Babson community through a number of ways. This ERG will help employees to build and nurture relationships with their peers by having a safe space with others who may share similar backgrounds or interests. It will develop and enhance the College’s commitment to the AAPI/Asian community, and larger commitment to diversity and inclusion, through its programming. Through collaboration with other identity-based groups on campus the ERG will help to create a more inclusive environment and welcoming community for all.
Finally, the AAPI/Asian ERG will support professional development and interactions by acknowledging the different needs in education, personalities, skill sets, experiences, and knowledge bases among the AAPI/Asian employee community. It will create and share resources relevant to AAPI/Asian employees to enhance their professional development. These goals will assist in the College’s recruitment and retention of AAPI/Asian faculty and staff.
